Difference Between Calibration And Correction Sensors: ColorEdge CS240

Some monitors in the EIZO range feature built-in calibration sensors while others have a correction sensor.

A built-in calibration sensor, found on the ColorEdge CG series (CG276, CG275W, CG246, CG245W) can be used to calibrate the monitor its featured in and it can also correlate to the measurement results of an external calibration sensor. You'll also find that ColorNavigator can make a colour profile with this sensor and if set, the SelfCalibration function allows for scheduled calibrating.

If you have a monitor from the EIZO ColorEdge CX or CS series your monitor will feature a built-in correction sensor. The function of this sensor is different to that of a built-in calibration sensor as its function is to maintain the display of colours and brightness only. If you want to create a colour profile an external calibration sensor is required but there is a SelfCorrection function which allows scheduled corrections to take place.
